There are a few things I've been making to put on Baden's wall in his Surf Shack room. Here's a sign I just finished. Since Baden is kind of my shy guy, I thought "Be Brave" would be a good theme for him and it fits the whole surfing theme as well.
I went to the Depot and purchased a 2'x4' sheet of plywood. I had them cut it in half for me (so I can make 2 signs). So the sign is pretty big - 2'x2'.
I started by cutting out vinyl letters. I also drew in a sun by tracing a plate.
I penciled in a wave shape for the ocean. I had some leftover paint from his bed and some yellow paint leftover from a project in the family room.
I wanted the plywood itself to be left in some areas of the sign.
I painted the areas, peeled off the vinyl, and gave the whole piece a decent sanding to make it a little distressed. I'm still debating on whether to leave it or to do a gray wash over the whole thing. What do you think?
Thanks for dropping in.
